One of the key ICT events which forms part of the 2013 iAwards program each year is the Australia 3.0 Forum. This thought leadership summit will bring together experts and senior representatives from the ICT industry and Australia’s major economic sectors, to discuss and debate how the digital economy can lift national productivity through the use of innovative technology.
Offering a unique opportunity for informed and action-oriented discussions, the core focus of this year’s Australia 3.0 will explore how the Australian economy can react to the age of digital transformation, in particular digital productivity. Streams being examined include the Agriculture, Mining, Infrastructure, Health and Services in Government sectors. Due to the pace of digital transformation, the effects will continue more aggressively into the future, accelerated by ubiquitous high-speed broadband and ever improving smart phone devices.
During the months of May through until August this year, Australian thought leaders and industry influencers will be gathering for an intensive eight week online debate, followed by a single day forum in Melbourne – on the day of the national iAwards Gala Dinner, 8 August.
A joint initiative between iAwards host partners ACS, AIIA, Pearcey Foundation and DIISRTE, Australia 3.0 provides the opportunity for industry representatives to play an active role in the driving of the future productivity and competitiveness of Australia’s economy.
Whilst participation is by invitation only, Australia 3.0 is looking to ensure it has involvement from the country’s brightest and most experienced leaders. So if you think you have what it takes, or know a leader in Industry, Government, Academia or ICT that should to be a part of this nationwide initiative, contact [email protected] - all applications will be considered.
Australia 3.0 Virtual Round-table is the online debate, and provides a secure, private space for Australia 3.0 participants to submit opinions, research, suggestions, and documents during the months leading up to the forum. This is a unique opportunity for all participants to contribute their ideas over an extended period, allowing for more informed discussion on the day of the forum. The Virtual Round-table runs from May 8 until the end of June.
Australia 3.0 forum is a single day event taking place at Crown Promenade Melbourne on Thursday 8 August from 8.30am through until 4.00pm. Participants will also have the opportunity to continue on to the national iAwards Gala dinner and celebrate the success of the National iAwards winners.
